IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL
COACHES AND PLAYERS:
Please remember to clean up after all games and
practices. This includes tape, sports bottles, snack wrappers, etc. that are
being left behind at the fields. Park use is a privilege - we don't
want to lose it for leaving garbage behind! We have been receiving
complaints and need to do a better job on this. THANK YOU!

Rec Player Development
Plymouth Park Rainout line:
Recreational Soccer is designed for the
beginning or developing player who is looking for a relaxed atmosphere to
have fun while sharpening individual skills and learning more about the
game. Newcomers to soccer are welcome at any age. Younger age groups play
fun games while learning about soccer. Parent involvement is highly
recommended. Recreational teams only play other PSA teams.
The soccer fields in our community are a fabulous
resource. As with any of our natural resources, we must be prudent in their
use. Our soccer fields continue to be scheduled and re-scheduled, and
finally over-scheduled until the grass gives way to dirt and the rain turns
the dirt to mud. Despite the best efforts of the City of Plymouth and the
various school districts involved to maintain the available resources, the
demands placed on these facilities overtake even the most meticulous of
caretaking programs. Many other “green space” organizations (e.g., baseball,
softball, football, rugby and lacrosse, etc.) use the community’s field
resources. The pressure on our fields is all based on hours of play per
facility. The truth be known, our green space is repeatedly over-scheduled
to the point of exhaustion!
Plymouth Soccer Association is doing something about it!
About two years ago, the PSA Board of Directors voted to dedicate a portion
of the receipts of our various soccer programs to the upkeep and improvement
of targeted soccer fields. The first major project was to donate over $7500
towards the installation of an irrigation system at Kimberly Lane
Elementary. Having been shut down for two seasons to complete the work,
Kimberly Lane will be back on-line for the summer 2002 season. This past
summer, PSA worked with the City of Plymouth in obtaining a “Mighty Kicks”
grant from the state and allocated over $10,000 to the Greenwood Elementary
Renovation Project. This will result in four new soccer fields being
available for the 2003 season.
Additional projects are in the works. In cooperation with
School District 284, Plymouth/Wayzata Football and Wayzata Soccer Club, PSA
has contributed funds to install new lighting at Central Middle School
Stadium Field. The new lighting system is installed and functional and will
be available for the 2002 season. Other projects under consideration include
enhancements at Ridgemount Playfield, Plymouth Creek Elementary and on-going
improvements to Plymouth Creek Playfield.
PSA’s goal is to improve the safety and the quality of the
soccer experience at each and every facility for each and every player.
